Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders became an unexpected meme during the U.S. inauguration ceremony on Wednesday, January 20 after being photographed appearing extremely uncomfortable and cold while in his seat.

79-year-old Sanders, who was dressed casually for the festivities donning his signature Burton (snowboarding) jacket with patterned knit mittens and a disposable blue surgical mask, looked pretty grumpy in the cold weather, all alone.

A now-iconic photo of a bundled-up Sanders, sitting alone in a folding chair with his arms crossed over his knees, immediately became a hit.

Since the event social media users could not hold back from making some of the most comical memes about the law-maker and we can’t help but laugh.

Here are some of the best memes we’ve come across so far.

The Internet's Grey Johnson said: “Bernie looks fully prepared to leave this event early to mail his taxes and cash a cashier's check”.

@thecherrieberry said: “Idk if this has been done already but here's my contribution to the Bernie memes“.
